By other information, I mean educational background for the five years that I don't have anything to show for employment. I've actually never been employed and know that it's not required but I wonder if they would think I'm lying if I have nothing to show for what I been doing for the previous 5 years. I'm 24 and recently graduated with a BA in Psychology. Would it help to send copies of transcripts, diplomas, both, or none? Would any of this information even matter?
It would suffice to include information that you have been attending school during the 5 year period. Assuming an interview for the petition or an application for permanent residency, you can certainly clarify for the immigration officer that you are or were a student. There is no requirement that you be employed as an applicant, only that you will not become a public charge, hence the requirement for the sponsor to complete an affidavit of support on your behalf.
